Nick Kranick knocks in three runs in win
ALEXANDRIA, VA – by Lukas Favale – Colin Milon (George Washington) allowed just two runs over seven innings, and Nick Kranick drove in three runs, including the go-ahead run in the bottom of the eighth, as the Alexandria Aces edged the Gaithersburg Giants 4-3 Thursday night at Frank Mann Field. The win pushed the Aces past the Giants for second place in the Cal Ripken League.
In a back and forth affair, the Aces took the lead for good in the bottom of the eighth. Blaine Bower (Elon) led off the inning with an infield single, legging of a ball hit to the hole between third and short. After being moved over to second on a sacrifice bunt, Bower would eventually score on a Kranick RBI single, giving the Aces a 4-3 lead. Nick Collins (Georgetown) would be thrown out at home on the play.
Defense stumbles for Aces in defeat
ALEXANDRIA, VA – by Lukas Favale – The D.C. Grays scored four unearned runs, including three in the first inning, to inch past the Alexandria Aces 4-3 Tuesday night at Frank Mann Field. The defeat drops the Aces, just 5-5 in their last ten games, to 18-12 on the season and down to third place in the Cal Ripken League.
It was a sloppy start in the field for the Aces once again Tuesday night. After committing five errors in two games on Monday, the normally crisp fielding Aces made an error in the top of the first. That opened the door for the Grays to jump out to a quick lead against Aces starting pitcher Ronnie Glenn (UPenn). Read more

ALEXANDRIA, VA – by Lukas Favale -The Alexandria Aces finished up its six game in three day stretch by splitting a doubleheader against the Rockville Express. The Express won the first game 4-2 before the Aces bounced back in the second game with a 7-2 win. The Aces moved to 18-11 on the season after the loss and win.
The Express grabbed Game 1 against the Aces, on the strength of a 3-run sixth inning. With the game knotted at one, the Express went to work against Aces starter Brett Kennedy (Fordham). Two hits and an error loaded the bases against Brett Kennedy before he was replaced by Ben Kennedy (Eastern Illinois). Ben would allow all three inherited runners to score on a pair of RBI single and a run scoring walk, giving Rockville a 4-1 lead. Read more
Offense struggles in game one before exploding in game two
ALEXANDRIA, VA – by Lukas Favale – The Alexandria Aces and Herndon Braves split a Sunday afternoon doubleheader at Frank Mann Field, with the Braves winning 2-1 in Game 1, followed by an 11-5 win in Game 2. The Aces record moved to 17-10 on the season with the win and loss this afternoon.
Runs were at a premium in Game 1 of the twin bill. The Braves did all their scoring in the top of the first. After a lead off single was erased when starting pitcher Michell Aker (William and Mary) recorded a pick off, the Braves got back-to-back walks to put men on first and second. Nick Morabito then drove in both men with a long double to left-center field, giving the Braves a 2-0 lead. Read more
